Roberto Mancini's sacking from his job at Manchester City was - in my opinion - disrespectful yet unsurprising.
According to reports, the Italian felt he was 'stabbed in the back' by the City hierarchy after Malaga boss - Manuel Pellegrini - was courted as his replacement without his knowledge.
It seems to be a case of 'what goes around comes around'.
Mancini was in Pellegrini's position a number of years ago when he was negotiating a deal to come in and replace Mark Hughes.
I was appalled at the way Hughes was treated back then (I am sure I wrote about it on here). After winning the Premier League title last year, as well as winning the FA Cup a year before that, Mancini has now been dropped in the same fashion. Only this time it is worse as he had brought some success to the club.
Football. It's a funny old game.
And so is the behind the scenes business.
